Miss Angola Leila Lopes was crowned Miss Universe 2011 in a star-studded ceremony in Brazil’s Sao Paolo.
Lopes was a strong contender and raised hopes for her country after making it to the final five contestants. She beat 88 other competitors at the Sao Paulo pageant.
“Thank God I’m very satisfied with the way God created me and I wouldn’t change a thing,” Lopes said when asked her interview question. “I consider myself a woman endowed with inner beauty. I have acquired many wonderful principles from my family and I intend to follow these for the rest of my life.”
